Tuesday Jan 4th, 9 Triathletes and Ironmen departed Toronto fore Oannes Athletics Margarita Triathlon Camp on Margarita Island, Venezuela. We arrived to gorgeous sunny warm weather which stayed with us for the entire seven days. Within an hour of landing, we had checked into the Laguna Mar Resort and our sumptuous rooms in the five story South Tower. Most athletes dashed to find a quick meal at one of the six restaurants on site and met for an info session about the next 7 days swim, cycling and running training. Coaches Brent Aquino and Karen Bonham took the athletes to their training limits in this unique warm weather training opportunity..
The daily training schedule started at 6 AM daily with a run and or swim (ocean, saltwater laguna or 50 m outdoor pool) on resort. Three of the days, the group left the resort and swam, cycled and ran in the tropical and desert like areas of the island.
In all, the week was a smashing success thanks to the positive contributions of those participating.
